UCU Canons Thrashed By D-Mark Power To Force Game 3

In the National Basketball League playoffs at the Lugogo Arena on Friday night, D-Mark Power registered a 74-66 victory over UCU Canons.  After the Mukono-based side led the series, Power returned in the second game with the hunger to restore parity.

They held their nerves as they pulled off a stellar performance to see that they level the series thus creating a date for the decider.

Power started off like a house on fire in the first quarter with a 12-point (21-9) lead. The Canons struggled to get the ball falling amidst endless trials.

In the second quarter, Canons improved their offense as they rotated the ball quite more than in the earlier block. By the time the two sides went into the long break, Power led by just a point (37-36).

Coach Nicholas Natuhereza greatly rotated the squad and his bench produced 39 points while Power only gathered seven. Jimmy Otim scored a game-high 18 points on top of four rebounds and seven assists.

The other Canons’ players in double digits were Jerry Samson Kayanja and Ibanda Lwabaga who contributed 10 and 12 points respectively.

Going into game three, it will be a do-or-die as the winner in that encounter will take a ticket to play in the semifinals.
